This Segment now includes bonds raising funds for projects that correspond to the taxonomy of adaptation (transition) projects introduced by the RF Government Resolution No. 1587 dated September 21, 2021.

On December 30, 2021, the Moscow Exchange included the issue of JSC INK-Capital's transition bonds in the National and Adaptation (Transition) Projects Segment of the Sustainable Development Sector. Thus, the first transition bonds in the history of the Russian stock market were also the first ones to be included in the corresponding segment of the Moscow Exchange.

Purpose of the Bonds Issue 

The purpose of the issue is a partial refinancing of the costs incurred in 2019-2021 for the cycling process project (re-injection of associated petroleum gas into the reservoir) in the Yaraktinsky field (hereinafter referred to as the Project) implemented by the main operating entity of the Group – LLC INK (hereinafter referred to as INK).  

Broken down by stages, implementation of the Project started in 2009 with support of JSC INK-Capital shareholders. The Project’s implementation resulted in a reduction of gas flaring and, consequently, a reduction of emissions, including emissions of pollutants. As is known, oil production leads to extraction of associated petroleum gas, which is commonly burned in flares, if no other utilization methods are available. In 2009, the Company was granted a targeted loan of 90 million euros for the Project’s implementation, and the Project became the first of its kind implemented in Russia’s oil and gas sector on an industrial scale.

In 2012, the investment project of INK “Utilization of associated petroleum gas in the Yaraktinsky field, Irkutsk Region, Russia” was approved by Order of the Ministry of Economic Development of Russia No. 277 dated May 16, 2012 as joint implementation project No. 10 (in total, 12 such projects were approved), which meant the potential use of emissions quotas under the Kyoto Protocol.

The environmental effect of the Project’s is verified by an independent environmental consultancy (LLC Environ Consult CIS) on a yearly basis. Considering its statement, the verifier of the bonds (rating agency JSC Expert RA) issues a yearly written second-party opinion of the bonds compliance with the principles of transition bonds and criteria of adaptation financial instruments.

In addition, JSC INK-Capital publishes yearly disclosures (reports) on the targeted use of the funds raised with the bonds and on the project implementation status in compliance with the legal requirements of the Russian Federation.  

Background: In May 2012, INK was awarded the EBRD Sustainable Development Achievement Award and was the winner in the category for Outstanding Environmental and Social Achievements. At the awarding ceremony, the independent jury especially commended the Company's work on associated petroleum gas re-injection back into the reservoir in the Yaraktinsky field.

In October 2012, successful implementation of the Project was noted at the Global Gas Flaring Reduction Forum, organized by the World Bank and held in London.
